webmistresses

While failing to work I am half listening to Dara O'Briain doing some comedy routine on tv. He has just done some limp jokes about the job title webmaster:
a) not being a 'real job' because the title didn't exist 10 years ago
b) being done by men who cannot relate to women
c) confusing it with basic computer repair.

WTF?

a) Not even true! 10 years ago is 1998! 1988, maybe.
b) Is it me, or are webmasters surprisingly often actually webmistresses..? It's almost like being a journalist, it's not even a particularly techy skill a lot of the time.
c) Just 'eh'. Can anyone actually believe this?

Dara O'Briain is only 36! He's younger than me! How come he's doing a routine that sounds like it came from 1995? Bleh!
